Solomon Islands and China's Security Pact: Why is the West Complaining?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


April 8, 2022 (The New Atlas) – The Solomon Islands is in the process of working out a security pact with China which would allow Chinese police and soldiers to help maintain order in the country upon request. The West has decried this deal as a sign of growing Chinese influence, but fail to point out the context within which this pact is necessary for both the Solomon Islands and China. 




It has been the US, Australia, and Taiwan who have undermined the peace, stability, and security of the Solomon Islands for years, forcing Honiara to find a more reliable security partner. China is already a reliable and important economic partner, thus Honiara believes China will make a suitable security partner.
